Thread: Dirty English?

    Personally, I've only ever sampled, but never bought Dirty English - so take what I say with a pinch of salt.

    I find it a very bland scent wrapped up in a provocative name. In my opinion, it's a poor man's Gucci PH1 - except without the clarity, projection, longevity or progression. As I already have PH1 I saw no need to buy DE, because I couldn't think of a time I would decide to wear it rather than PH. (That might just be a personality thing: I'd rather rotate between a few classic scents than own a cupboard full of cheapies.)

    I also find an off note in DE. I know some read it as diesel, and some as dirt, and find it sexy and challenging, but to me, it shouldn't have been there. I guess the secret is how you associate this particular tone.

    Everyone is different, and I have to say that some people love DE.

    Holy thread necrophilia, Batman!

    I wonder what the OP got for Christmas 2009 and 2010, and what he's asked for this year. . .

    (And I'm guilty of giving it a further bump - aren't I a self-serving weasel?)

    Wow, I did not know Dirty English was discontinued. It seems like just yesterday Nordstrom SAs were hawking this stuff to passerby! I like it. Maybe I will look for a bottle at TJ.

    It was super cheap at Perumania and I always fancied it, so I asked the girl at the counter when they'd get more in. She said they wouldn't b/c it was discontinued. I panicked and bought two 1 oz bottles and immediately went home and booted up the Mac for some Amazon shopping. I found a good price on the 3.4 oz bottle and when I received it I made an unbreakable blood promise that I would forever cherish it and never neglect it like I had Curve and Le Male, which I rarely wear anymore. I thought it would be gone from this earth entirely by now but it's still abundant apparently.

    I bought a 100ml backup for $19.95 from Marshall's today. Good enough to warrant a backup and the price was right.

    I'm seeing these, too. Probably one of the best steals at Marshall's right now. The $19.95 Rochas Man deals are also great, but that's gonna be around for a while. DE is slowly disappearing, from what I'm seeing.

    Ditto! I like DE and the spice/leather notes.

    Time to scour the discounters.

    Market really lacks of Dirty English and Gucci Pour Homme I as both share the vibe and both discontinued. Shame, shame, shame. I wonder why is there a "problem" with that type of scents, they're not mainstream enough? Sweet enough? Ctric enough? God knows what enough?

    Agreed. I love the scent, but hate the opening (the first 10 minutes or so kill my senses, but I love it after that). I can never smell it after I applied it, but ...

    This is one of the few fragrances I've ever worn that has gotten compliments from strangers.

    Couldn┤t agree more.
    The Dreamer from Versace: what does this scent have that is so alluring and enticing towards the opposite sex ?
